Loved Parker showing up in scrubs and giving Hardison a hard time over the original nurse costume.

Nice Eliot background bit.

Had to nope out of this one shortly after the purell made its appearance -- no books/episodes/movies about disease or even pretend disease right now. Otherwise the perfect show for these times though.

Kung Fu Monkey - LEVERAGE #203 "The Order 23 Job" Post-game (John Rogers) "Double character beats in this one. The Nate one is a followup of his comment in "The 12 Step Job" that maybe he was more of a bastard sober. A sober Nate Ford is still obsessive, brilliant, and righteous -- and now forced to live with himself 24/7. "We all trade one addiction for another," Nate said in the season opener. And he's not exactly well-adjusted enough to make the most ... therapeutically sound choices when it comes to his new life choices. (I refuse to say "recovery", by the way). The Eliot story isn't meant to imply anything about his backstory. Or, if it does, I would caution you into laying the most literal interpretation onto the story. That character's seen a lot of nasty things in his life, and certain things tweak him more strongly than others. But it's a fair bit more complicated than the straight ahead read ..."

When Eliot turned of the earpiece it stretched my disbelief. Their whole thing is that they can always talk to each other - why would they stop that? I think it would have worked better to have Hardison discover the assassin's car right after Eliot fights him.
